In today’s digital-dependent era, finding a balance between real life and the online world can be a real struggle, particularly for parents.
On Tuesday evening, the Beverly Hills Unified School District will hold its second “Plugged In Parents” event in an effort to help educate and empower parents, this time with featured speaker Anya Kamenetz, NPR reporter and author of the book The Art Of Screen Time: How Your Family Can Balance Digital Media & Real Life.
“As BHUSD prepares our students to become 21st century learners, our role as parents is critical to help our children shape their digital personas and mindset of digital citizenship,” said BHUSD parent Kimberly Combs.
Sponsored by the school district and the PTA Council, BHUSD Director of Technology Bernadette Lucas said the series started with a desire from parents to know more about how technology is being used in the classroom.
